Asim Riaz may not have won Bigg Boss season 13 but he is excited about all the love he has got from audience. The model has said in his first interview after leaving the Bigg Boss house that is overwhelmed with the response he has got.

Asim lost out on trophy to television actor Sidharth Shukla. “Yes, I wanted to win. I was a little disappointed but that’s the game. Only one person could have won it. But the way people are telling me that I am the winner for them, that’s a big thing for me,” he said. Asim also mentioned how he got ‘international support,’ perhaps talking about how wrestler John Cena shared posts about him on Instagram.

Asim also talked about his relationship with singer Himanshi Khurana and how he is sure his family will accept her. “Surely they will accept her if I love her. I think she is a very intelligent and beautiful girl. There’s nothing about her that someone wouldn’t like. Very successful and very hardworking girl. My family is fair enough. I even made them meet her on stage. She’s the first girl I have made my dad meet. I am 26. I am not lying. Nobody I’ve got to my dad like ‘This is my girl’. So I feel very lucky and proud of myself today that my hard work of 10 years has worked for me,” he said.
